Had a great stay
Very cute boutique hotel and well located. Love that they are dog friendly and all the goodies they provide. Stunning rooftop! The front desk staff were great! Rooms while small are very comfortable and well appointed. No carpets are a plus for me is a plus, it’s just more sanitary. If you need to stay in Williamsburg I highly recommend.

Squeeky-new hotel
We came for a few days to dip into the NY jazz scene. I picked the hotel b/c good ratings and close to the L train.

Williamsburg boutique hotel
Nice boutique hotel in Williamsburg. Room quite small, but we’ll laid out and modern. Rooftop was great! We will stay there again.

8/10 Very good

Hotel is very cool and modern. Rooftop bar is very nice with great views. Not sure if it was just our room but it was tiny. Not really a negative...just takes some getting used to. The front desk told us that some of the floors in the building are actually dorm rooms, which might help explain the size of the rooms. Everything inside the hotel was super clean and housekeeping was there every morning. The location of this hotel is one of the biggest positives. Lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance. Also a couple nice parks, including one right off the river with great views.
